20 years in the infrastructure-support arena--seeking a new opportunity with a company needing the in-depth expertise I have to offer
Nov 1988 - Nov 2008
Technical Services Manager
In my time with AIMCO, I shepherded the company from an IBM System 36 with half a dozen dumb terminals to where they are today: a nation-spanning WAN connecting hundreds of offices and properties, hundreds of servers, thousands of MS Exchange users, and an IT group which numbers close to 100.
Over my career with the company, I was able to demonstrate my ability to get things done on my own, as well as my talents in working well as part of a large team.
The shop is Microsoft-centric, using mainly Windows servers, MS Exchange, and Active Directory to manage network user rights.
The team I led was together for more than six years, an almost unheard-of level of retention.
The CFO of the company personally sought my assistance and asked me to edit his departmental newsletter, going out monthly to about 500 people. Such was my reputation for clear, coherent communication.
Among my technical skills:
